“I am me and you are you and we are we and we are all together. Corporation t-shirts, stupid bloody Tuesday, see how they run? Coming back from Kabul laying in a casket, see how they fly? Something’s wrong. The more I want to be me, the more I feel empty. The more I express myself, the more I am drained. The more I run after myself, the tireder I get. Meanwhile, we manage. We blog, we rent apartments, the latest fashionable crap, relationship dramas, who’s hooking up with whom, whatever it takes to hold on. All the existential crutches that allow us to keep dragging on, the dependencies we’ve contracted as the price of identity. Where do we go, sweet child, where do we go? Where do we go now?” – Mark Tribe
?Thursday 21 January 2010 – Guest artist talk with Mark Tribe at CalArts, Valencia.
